I canít remember what study it was but Iím sure someone looked at champions leagues finals and found the majority of players who make it to cl finals (peak of club football surely) have been playing first team since 17 years old.
All that probably says is that elite talent breaks through earlier like, but I thought it was interesting.
Yes could see this being true.
But would be interesting to see what level - eg playing at 17 in Holland isnít as hard as here.
And does it just mean made their debut at 17, or starting most weeks?
